I'm generally a football person myself but this year I really got into baseball and the Royals. I'll admit -- I was pretty jazzed about the team a week before the All-Star break.â†µ
They had won 10 of 13 and the playoffs were only slightly crazy talk at that point. Things seemed to be going well.â†µ
But you knew it wouldn't last.â†µ
It didn't. The Royals were swept in the series heading into the break and the one immediately after.â†µ
Now the Royals are out of it, Chiefs training camp is here and it's hard to pay attention to the baseball team anymore.â†µ
This is usually the time of year when the Royals begin to sort of shut off for me.â†µ
I imagine I'm not alone here as the Royals have been pretty bad for a pretty long time.
